Outpatient Mental Health Professional
More About Kristina Fraser
I work with adults experiencing mental health symptoms related to depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, personality disorders and those that struggle with relational and family conflicts. I also work with clients that are dealing with parenting struggles and enjoy helping parents find healthier ways to address parenting struggles. I like to teach / coach clients to learn new skills to better manage their symptoms and improve their daily life.
I value a systemic approach that focuses on the person-in-environment to understanding the client as a whole. I use several methods to coach and guide individuals back to a healthier and happier lifestyle; motivational interviewing, positive affirmations, practice and teach a variety of life skills, as well as mindfulness and relaxation skills. I also incorporate some dialectal behavior therapy skills and cognitive behavior skills. I believe that everyone does the best they can with the tools they have available in each moment. My goal is to increase my client's tool selection so that they are able to face life's challenges a little easier.
I enjoy spending time with my family out in nature during the summer. We enjoy traveling to Australia and California to visit family. During the winter, we tend to stay indoors and play board games or watch movies, or crafting. During the summer, our family spends most of our time in the yard, playing sports and improving our yard. I also enjoy attending church with my family.
